THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minn. — A Colorado man is facing a bribery charge after trying to avoid arrest by offering an officer $40 and telling the officer to be like his former police-chief grandfather and have some “discretion,” according to a criminal complaint.

Shawn Pierre Belland, of Centennial, Colo., made his first appearance Monday afternoon in Pennington County District Court on the felony, which carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and $20,000 fine.
